Losing Someone to Cancer


Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.

It was hard, I would want to throw something, I would cry.  People would look at me with such pity and after he passed there were several people who told me.. now it's your turn to live.  I still have anxiety and I always think I wish I could talk to him, tell me what he felt and if he is at peace and ok.  We lived thru it though.  I keep thinking if I get sick, I will I be like that?  I would hate to put that on my daughter

You are both wise to walk away from your loved one and cool down and collect yourself when they don't treat you right. I've had to do that, too. It's far better than getting angry and yelling back at them. I've made that mistake, too. My husband could push my hot buttons easily and I sometimes got upset at him instead of walking away. I also did a lot of holding my tongue and not saying anything at all. I wasn't free to speak in my own home for many hours of each day unless I wanted a confrontation that would go nowhere but downhill.

I always had to put into perspective the disease.   I remember friends came and brought food, at this point my husband was in a hospital bed unable to walk.   I was about to eat and he called me, I started to walk to him and his buddy said hey Dan what do you need, I'll get it, Donna is eating and he got angry and said no I want her now!  No, I would never verbalize to him how tired I was or anything.  He had been given a 3 week life sentence at that point, I would have to walk away or go outside and collect myself.  Hospice had told us to expect this. That they are angry and they will take it out on the one they are closest to.  Life is always changing and I take nothing for granted.

Don't want this any more

I don't want this pain anymore, I feel like I can't breath without him yet I do, I don't want to face another yet I drag myself out of bed,I don't want anymore memories because he won't be apart of them anymore. I feel so empty I have tried more tears than I thought possible, I did not deserve him yet I was blessed to have him for 26 years he was my world and now he's gone I feel like nothing matters I don't want this anymore.

Buried with silence

The pain hurts so much, I feel so along without my soulmate, he was everything to me, the one I dream of having family with. I jus can't live with this silent, bury my feeling everyday, pretend everything is ok, but I'm hurting and I have no one that I can feel to open up to. I'm crying in pain, it's been a while since I wrote on here, I just wasn't feeling it to do anything. My mom thinks once I get my life together, have a job soon, going to gym meet new friends, that I would feel better, and…See More
